Salix and Santarus announced on November 7, 2013 that the companies have entered into a definitive merger agreement under which Salix will acquire all of the outstanding common stock of Santarus for approximately $2.6 billion. Under the terms of the transaction, Santarus shareholders will receive $32.00 for each share of Santarus stock they own. The claims concern whether the Santarus Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Salix Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is underpaying for Santarus shares.
